Nathan Shedroff and Chris Noessel's long-awaited book, Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction, is now available for purchase!

We're biased, but what could be a more enjoyable way to hone your interaction design skills than by learning from sci-fi? And listen to Bruce Sterling: "I never imagined that I would be reading a book like this, or that it would be this good."

Here's the blurb: "Many designers enjoy the interfaces seen in science fiction films and television shows. Freed from the rigorous constraints of designing for real users, sci-fi production designers develop blue-sky interfaces that are inspiring, humorous, and even instructive. By carefully studying these "outsider" user interfaces, designers can derive lessons that make their real-world designs more cutting edge and successful.So please:

  • Read Wired's coverage
  • Enjoy the loving testimonials from folks like Alan Cooper, The Bourne Identity's Mark Coleran, and io9's Annalee Newitz
  • Check out 680 (!!!) amazing illustrations on Flickr
  • Then buy it directly from Rosenfeld Media (or Amazon, if you must)


We offer Make It So in two packages:

  1. Full color 348 page paperback + PDF + ePUB (for iPad) + MOBI (for Kindle)--all DRM-free--at US$39
